We had a great Bank Holiday weekend we all went out west and spent Sunday at the Roscommon Lamb festival. We all went along to the Wool Craft Village which I heard about on Michelle's Blog here.In one corner they were shearing sheep, another corner three women were spinning wool. A knitters paradise!
I came across Michelle's blog when I googled for articles about knitting a while ago. She is a confessed craftaholic (I love that expression) It was Michelle's article here that prompted me to go down to the wool village. I was so happy that I did...
I got to meet Michelle, have a look at her lovely website Michelle made this which shows all her crafty creations. I am her blogging groupie! She was part of organising the Wool Craft Village with her knitting club The Cast Offs. There was lots of wool and needles so anyone could give it a go.
I sat and knitted with Megan, Oscar, and Aoibhe in the knitting circle and they were all so welcoming. This Is Knit the shop from Dublin had a stand and we ended up buying lots of wool and even knitting needles for my kids. I am knitting a scarf and the wool is so fine it is like knitting with spiders web. I'll post up a photo when I am finished.
